You’ll ♥ your library in February

Black History Month

Black History Month is an annual celebration of achievements by Black individuals and a time for recognizing the central role of the Black community in U.S. history.

We have special events and recommendations from our collection for you to create your own celebration!

Visit the Library's homepage to see what's on offer.  And check our calendar to see all of our special Black History Month events.


Tucson Gem, Mineral, and Fossil Showcase

Collectors, vendors, and enthusiasts are ready for Tucson's annual Gem, Mineral, and Fossil showcase, an event that brings in over $120 million dollars to the Tucson economy every year. Whether you are a gem aficionado, want to learn more, or don't want to brave the crowds the next couple of weeks, there's a book for you here at the PCPL.
